From OpenFOAMWiki

This is an overview page of all the available feature pages. To make a page a feature page

  • Make it a sub-page of Feature
  • Add a property FeatureName (pages using this property will be added to the table)
  • Add a property FeatureCategory (Attention: use one of the values described on the property-page)
  • Add version templates for all Foam/OpenFOAM-versions to support this (please only use point-versions but no patch-versions: so 2.3 but not 2.3.1)
  • All this can be done in a free-form text that describes this features. Useful information in this text can be
    • Links to the release notes where this feature was first described
    • Links to other related/similar features here on the Wiki
    • For claims about the performance/problems of a feature add links to MessageBoard discussions, presentations etc

1.1 Physical Model

1.1.1 Feature/fvOptions

fvOptions allow selecting Physical Model(s) at run-time

1.1.2 Feature/multiphase Turbulence

With Multiphase turbulence the fractions of the phases are correctly treated in the turbulence model

1.1.3 Feature/thermal baffles

The Physical Model(s) thermal baffles allow simulating thin solid structures and their thermal conductivity
